Located at the very heart of the school, East is renowned for its Hogwarts-like feel. The rabbit-warren of hidden staircases and split-level rooms give a unique character which is incredibly popular with the boys. East has housed boys at Cranleigh since the earliest days of the school, but thanks to regular refurbishment, the house is modern and light. Unique names for spaces include The Ship and Old Day Res, which now houses a modern Sixth Form common room.

Our excellent house spirit stems from the boys throwing themselves into the wide range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities available at Cranleigh. We strive to be a house where boys can be themselves and feel genuinely at home.

— Housemaster: Mr Peter Bradnock

Cranleigh has a special place in Mr Bradnock’s heart. He loves hearing the owls at night and seeing the mist in the morning, but most of all, he enjoys seeing his son Josh spend time with his ‘big brothers’ in East.
